Florida Gulf Coast Eagles Women's Basketball TicketsIn a relatively short amount of time, Florida Gulf Coast University’s women's basketball team has gone from a small start-up program to one of the top basketball teams in NCAA's Division I. Since the 2002-2003 seasons, the Eagles have not had a single losing year. On top of that, the numbers the Eagles continue to deliver have been quite exceptional and include five 30-win seasons and nine 25+-win seasons. In that same time frame, the team has also swept the conference five times. Equally impressive are the players coming out of the basketball program at Florida Gulf Coast. Keri Jewett-Giles, a redshirt junior in 2018-2019, had a whopping 911 NCAA career points entering the 2019-2020 season and just under 300 assists. Former Eagle Lisa Zderadicka, a senior in 2018-2019, was named a Winner for Life by the Atlantic Sun Conference.

Who is the head coach of the Eagles?Coach Karl Smesko is one of the most winningest coaches in all of women's basketball. As of the 2019-2020 season, Smesko has been coaching Division I play for 21 years and 18 of those seasons have been with the Eagles. His record going into the 2019-2020 season, which sat at 524-119 (.815), was good enough to rank him as the third-winningest active coach in the NCAA's Division I and the fifth winningest Division I head coach of all time. Taking all of the divisions together, Smesko ranks in the top 20. His guidance over the Eagles has led them to enviable accomplishments, including going undefeated in ASUN play in 2018-2019 and winning the conference tournament the same year for the third time, a feat that had only been achieved by one other team in the history of the conference. It's a remarkable feat, considering the Eagles didn't even have a gym when Smesko took over the program.
